Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

(4.2/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yanagawa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yanagawa River Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Paid for the 1500 yen 1 hour boat ride. Enjoyed the nice scenery along the canal. Unfortunately, the commentary was in Japanese only. Boat man also sang us some Japanese songs which was entertaining. ...  more »
  • 購買西鉄天神套票,可坐小舟遊柳川。兩旁種滿不同植物,景色優美。船家不斷講解,很有熱誠。遊河其間下雨,即有雨衣提供,很是貼心。  more »
  • In the snow of February went down the river. But it's okay! In the kotatsu style table hibachi? It can be warm. Boatman's best singing on the bridge is good, keep you entertained at all times and drive-thru? In the Petit banquet we can so you can buy liquor, sweet drinks, snacks, etc.
